Homewrecker Sport Fishing Charters

Homewrecker Sport Fishing Charters invites you to team up with Captain Roy Ihlenfeld for a day of unforgettable fishing on Lake Michigan. With over 4 decades of angling experience under his belt, you’ll be hard-pressed to find a person more suited for the job. Whether you’re just getting started or have been fishing for a while yourself, he’ll do his best to ensure you have a fun time on the water.

His boat is a 41’ Eight Harbor offshore sportfisher that runs on a pair of 454 HP Crusader inboard engines. This fishing machine was also built for comfort, boasting a full bathroom with sink and shower included. There’s plenty of room here for 6 anglers so you’re free to bring some friends or family members along for the ride.

As you would expect for any of the Great Lakes, the fishing is nothing short of spectacular. You’ll mostly be involved in some Salmon fishing action, with Chinook and Coho being the most common. They’re far from the only ones though, so count on other species like Steelhead Trout to also make an appearance.

Capt. Roy will provide you with all the rods, reels, and terminal tackle you’ll need for the trip. Not only that, but he’ll have your catch cleaned and bagged when you’re all done and ready to go. Just make sure to bring a valid fishing license and pack any drinks or snacks you’d like to have for the ride. Everything else is taken care of!

Captain Roy Ihlenfeld has been fishing for over 40 years now, and it's fair to say he's gotten really good at it during that time. He's not a big fan of tournament fishing, and would rather meet new people while chartering and share both his skill and enthusiasm with them. When you're fishing with Roy, you can count on him to go the extra mile to ensure you have a great time on the water!
